Laser Engrave a Halloween Pumpkin at the Fab Lab

| Jenn Sams |

Trick or treat! Spooky season is here, and the Suncoast Science Center/Faulhaber Fab Lab is getting festive with a Halloween workshop unlike any other. Families are invited to learn how to create a custom design or find a design online and then engrave it onto a pumpkin using the Fab Lab’s high-tech laser engraver. Selections at last year’s workshop included skeletons, monkeys and even a company logo! No experience is required, just a willingness to explore and have fun.

Hour-long sessions are available from 1-7pm on Saturday, October 23 in the Fab Lab at 4452 Beneva Road, Sarasota, FL 34233. Up to two children and one adult are permitted per $35 registration. Registration also includes one small pumpkin per child. Please reserve multiple slots if more children or adults would like to attend. The workshop sells out every year so reserve your spot early and make a day of it!
